One of the problems with this issue is that it's so big, complicated and messy that explaining it is almost impossible.
Of course, I'll try to do it justice in a news story soon -- very soon!
But I also created a web page that has the text of the proposed changes to the city charter with links to some of the provisions that raise questions, some of which might have answers that I don't know.
I'll keep adding my thoughts and questions (including questions that others have raised) until Tuesday. Feel free to comment on it just as you do here.
Here's the link. I'll try to pretty it up, too, so that the links on the tex are easier to notice.
